    The article presents information on stages of development of salamanders starting from being eggs. A mother salamander lays eggs that cling to the stem of a plant in a pond. Inside each egg, a baby salamander is growing and the yolk of each egg provides food for the baby salamander, which is...

    The present first description of an advanced stage of Scaeurgus unicirrhus paralarvae is based on two specimens from the Adriatic Sea. Their occurrence shows that S. unicirrhus completes its life cycle in this sea. An identification key for Mediterranean early juvenile octopodids is proposed.

    Paracyclops pilosus(Copepoda, Cyclopoida) is a typical benthic organism that also occurs in the water column. In this study, we report the first occurrence of this species in Brazil. Live adult individuals were acquired and maintained in laboratory cultures. Experiments were performed to address...

    Adults of different racial or ethnic groups vary in size and proportional measures, and one may assume that these differences become apparent early in the human growth cycle. Hence it is important to ascertain when during the growth period such differences become readily recognizable, and how...

    For species with complex life cycles, variation in growth or condition during early life stages may affect survival in later stages or during important life-stage transitions. These effects on survival may be an important source of recruitment variability. However, survival during early stages...
